Rep. Mesha Mainor: “The most dangerous thing to the Democrat Party is a black person with a mind of their own.”

Georgia State House Rep. Mesha Mainor is leaving the Democrat party because she didn’t toe the party line.

I know the GOP likes purity, but it’s not as obsessed as the Democrats.

Mainor said the Democrats pummeled her when she chose to support a school choice bill.

Mainor told Fox News Digital:

“When I decided to stand up on behalf of disadvantaged children in support of school choice, my Democrat colleagues didn’t stand by me,” Mainor explained of her decision in a statement to Fox News Digital. “They crucified me. When I decided to stand up in support of safe communities and refused to support efforts to defund the police, they didn’t back me. They abandoned me.”

“For far too long, the Democrat Party has gotten away with using and abusing the black community,” she added. “For decades, the Democrat Party has received the support of more than 90% of the black community. And what do we have to show for it? I represent a solidly blue district in the city of Atlanta. This isn’t a political decision for me. It’s a moral one.”

Mainor promised to continue her work ethic with both parties and will do everything she can for her constituents.

Education will remain a priority for Mainor. She mentioned a few months ago “that some schools in her district have 3% reading proficiency rates and that many kids cannot do simple math.”
